Gisborne District Council hourly rainfall totals come from the preceding time interval. For example, an hourly rainfall total at 10am includes all rain that had fallen between 9.01am and 10am. All measurements are in millimetres.
The last 24 hours and last 7 day totals are hour aligned and totalize backwards. For example, at 8:28am the data is showing you the previous 24 hours total to 8am, and the previous 7 days to 8am.
All times are NZDT, this means they are adjusted for daylight savings if it’s in place.

Multiple reports on the one webpage
Some pages have multiple reports. Choose the type from the buttons at the bottom of the report.
Dropdown menus for selection
Most of the webpages offer a dropdown menu to select the site. This selection will apply to all reports on the page.
Some pages offer a second dropdown menu to select the measurement.
Selecting sites on the map
Click on the spot on the map to select that site. This selection only applies to the current report.
You can select more than one site by holding the Ctrl key while selecting on your additional choices. This works in the dropdown menu or on the map.
To see more information
Hover over a site on the map and you will see more information about the location.
Hover over a result on the map to obtain the result of that measurement.
Changing the page appearance and exporting data
Hover over a chart, and in the top right corner there are 3 dots - for more options.
Here you can choose to see the graph data as a table. If you see a blue "i" like above, it means there is too much data for the graph to show all of it. If this happens, choose "Export data" (under more options) to download a data file which includes all data including what can't be displayed in the graph or table.
Beside the 3 dots is a "Focus mode" button, which enlarges the chart to fill the space.
